Wireless charging maybe but which type?

A couple of years ago I made up a great controversy mapping exercise based on wireless charging for cars. Since then tabletop wireless phone chargers appeared at Helsinki airport and even at Charles de Gaulle. then they disappeared. I supposed it was slipping down the hype curve to oblivion.

Maybe that was premature.

Here we have a fresh MIT post. decide for yourself! Key human actors seem to be Witricity,  U beam (their site seems not to be working, so here is a post from the blog of their former CTO) and the Wireless Power Consortium.

Meanwhile, on Arte you can see a great BBC documentary on the classic Thomas Edison – Nicola Tesla controversy in which the protagonists used mirrors and snake oil to persuade people that DC was better than AC and vice versa. Tesla’s ideas won that one.
